Eden Nature Park and Resort in Davao City was named after the famous biblical garden because of its lush greens and serene gardens that will help anyone seeking a quiet retreat in the middle of the city. With an elevation of 3,000 meters above sea level and a canopy of trees blocking out some of the sun’s rays, the park is also refreshingly cool, giving visitors a respite from the heat of the metro.
You won’t run out of things to do in this 75-hectare resort. You can enjoy walks in the Deer Park, the Flower Garden, Lola’s Garden, and the Butterfly Garden, learn more about the local culture at Tinubdan, or get lost in the Bamboo Maze. Adrenaline junkies can also try the Skyrider, Skyswing, Skycycle, and the Skywheel.
Those who want to extend their visit can choose from the many accomodations inside the resort, while several cafés and restaurants are in the park to serve guests snacks, meals, and drinks.
There are different rates depending on the package that you will get on the day of your visit. If you want the package with a buffet lunch, you need to pay P800 for each adult and P450 for each child aged 4 to 10 years old. For a package with plated snacks, adults are charged P350 and children P300. A Fishing Village package will cost adults P450 and children P300.
If you want to stay over one or several nights, the rates depend on the accomodations you book and range from P700 to P12,600 a night.
Since most activities here are outdoors, the best time to visit Eden Nature Park and Resort is during the dry season, from December to May. You can still visit during the other months, but plan for rainfall during your trip.
